Geoff was invaluable in getting us started on Scrum, and more importantly, following through and really embedding it into the organisation. He not only speeded up the adoption process but we probably would have faltered, and even failed, many times without Geoff's support. I rate Geoff very highly.Head of Development

Developing a habit of reflection and becoming a great servant-leader takes time and practice. I offer support to individuals who are bold enough to develop themselves and create great self-organising teams. Through regular, one-to-one coaching sessions, I will help people identify and pursue goals for themselves and their teams. Individuals are significantly more successful in their efforts if initial training is coupled with follow up coaching.
Benefits of servant-leadership coaching:
- Regular reflection upon the development of your own servant-leadership skills
- An external sounding board for the challenges that come up during the journey towards a self-organising team
- Quicker achievement of both personal and team goals
I am a Corporate Coach-U qualified coach and I also have PostGraduate qualifications in Performance Coaching (Business) and Business & Personal Coaching.
Teams who are new to Scrum can find it daunting. They typically take 3-6 months to get into a rhythm and truly internalise the required disciplines of a new way of working. An experienced coach can reduce this time and increase the productivity of your teams. Past experience shows that companies have a much greater success rate if they engage an experienced coach to guide a team getting started and, later on in their project, gather learning points and help them move forward.
This can be anything from one-day engagements to facilitating Sprint Planning or retrospective sessions through to organisational change consultancy. In all situations my primary aim is to help nurture internal agile coaches so that the ongoing transformation is self-sufficient, increasing the chances of success and reducing the reliance on external coaches
